I want to share my review of Hale Nalo because it was the most beautiful memorable experience. My husband and I honeymooned at the Zen Treehouse in Oahu and I’m so happy we decided to do that. When searching for a place to stay in Oahu I stumbled upon an ad for the Zen Treehouse and fell in love with... More

Aloha Fiona & Dave, Thank you so much for your kind words! Although our Garden Suites are wonderful, the Zen Treehouse really is a special place for making memorable moments like you describe so well. We really have nothing we could add to this review. Please do return again and again, and each time we will look forward to it,... More

I spent a week at the Zen Treehouse and it was as advertised, and much more. The spacious apartment is a quiet retreat just yards from the beach. Upon entering, a basket of bananas, pineapples and mangos await you as you enter this tranquil abode. It was also nice to have the beach towels, chairs, boogie boards, etc supplied and... More

Hale 'Nalo is exactly as shown on the web site. Accomodation at its best! Everything is excellent quality and designed with the comfort of guests in mind. It is quiet, spacious, private and secure. The mountain views are beautiful and the proximity to the most gorgeous beach is convenient. "Sweet Home Waimanalo" is just around the corner and offers the... More

Thank you TMT for taking a moment to review our Zen Treehouse, we do appreciate it! Comfort is a priority here at Hale 'Nalo and our location, just a few steps to where some have called it, the best beach in the world, adds to that by making it quite easy to relax the moment you arrive. HN More

Very nice place to stay. Yard area a great place for a picnic lunch and very Hawaii. Local eateries within walking distance and also very non-touristy. Beach is less than 5 minutes walking and just about perfect. Hosts are welcoming. Overall location good for exploring O'ahu.

Thank you Mac for your review! Yes, Waimanalo has a very "local" flavor and is a great starting point for exploring the whole island. Were glad you enjoyed our gardens and your stay with us here at Hale 'Nalo. Please come visit us again! HN More

Hale 'Nalo provides the visitor with the closest venue to the best beach in all of Hawaii. We have visited many beaches on the Hawaiian islands but none compare to the 30 second walk from Hale 'Nalo. Whether it's full sun or total shade the ~6 mile view usually has about 40 people in sight. Simply amazing. Herlinda and Wayne... More

Thank you for your review George! We agree, it is a fabulous yet uncrowded beach, to swim, to walk, or to relax, (you are welcome to use our beach gear) and all only a moment away. We too look forward to your return. Whether it's in our spacious Garden Suites, or you decide to stay in our Luxurious Zen Treehouse,... More

My wife and I came to Hawaii for 8 days -- a couple days vacation followed by a retreat to do some writing. We stayed the whole time at Hale 'Nalo in the upstairs rooms and loved it! It was my second time there, and once again it was just what I needed. Favorite parts: the breeze and ocean sounds... More

Thank you AS for the lovely review! Hale ‘Nalo is lovely and quiet retreat in a perfect location: a long pristine white sand beach with a shady firm path that runs alongside, perfect for long strolls or runs. We provide the essentials then respect your privacy; available if needed. We’re so happy you’re happy. Do please come again! HN More

My wife and I traveled here for Christmas. Great loft in the middle of a quiet sleepy town of waimanalo and just a short 3min walk to one if the most amazing beaches on the island. We will for sure be back.

My husband and I spent 5 nights here in October 2014. It is accurately portrayed on line. We had the larger rooms upstairs and welcomed the spaciousness. It's also very clean and quiet.

Mahalo for the nice review! We're very glad you enjoyed the ZEN Treehouse. The well-designed Garden Suites, although smaller in size, have the bonus of opening to our lush and shady tropical gardens. We do hope you come again soon! HN (P.S. This past October was unusually warm; thank you for taking it in stride.) More
